Here's how to get fresh pomegranate arils without the spraying of red juice.

How to handle a pomegranate

  1. Fill a large bowl with cool water.

  2. Use a sharp knife to score the thick skin of a pomegranate.

  3. Place pomegranate in the water and use your hands, while holding the pomegranate under the water, to break open the skin.

  4. Many of the arils will release at this point. Use your fingers to gently separate the arils from the white membranes.

  5. The arils will sink while the white membrane floats.

  6. Discard the membranes and pour arils into a sieve to drain. Pick out any remnants of membrane.

  7. Your arils are ready to eat.


Juicing a pomegranate: If you want fresh pomegranate juice, simply place arils in a food mill and juice. The tiny seeds in the arils will get left behind.
